Outkast's Andre 3000 has been confirmed to play Jimi Hendrix in a new Hollywood biopic to be titled 'All Is By My Side'.

The IFTN report says that the film will concentrate on Hendrix's life in London during 1966 and 1967 and is scheduled to begin filming next month in Ireland.

John Ridley, whose credits include U-Turn, Undercover Brother and Three Kings, is writing the script. Production is being shared by Subotica Entertainment, Darko Entertainment and Matador Pictures.

Andre 3000, born Andre Benjamin, was in the group OutKast with Antwan 'Big Boi' Patton. They hit number 1 in the U.S. with 'Ms Jackson' (2000), 'Hey Ya!' (2003) and 'The Way You Move' (2003) as did their album 'Speakerboxxx/The Love Below'.

Benjamin has previously acted in the movies Hollywood Homicide, Be Cool, Four Brothers and Idlewild along with TV series Class of 3000 and The Shield.



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
